The Muslimah Who Fell to Earth
Personal Stories by Canadian Muslim WomenBook - 2016
These twenty-one personal stories are told by women from practically all backgrounds and persuasions--devout and not-so devout, professionals and housewives, westernized and traditional, wearing jeans, hijab, or niqab, straight and gay, and originally from Africa, North America, South Asia, the Middle East, and East Asia--revealing in their own ways what it means to them to be a Muslim woman (a "Muslimah"). What we get is a complex of stories, all challenging conventions and stereotypes, and united by two ideas--Islam (or the Quran) and nationality (Canadian).
